Avatar: The Last Airbender cosplayers love dressing up as their favorite heroes from the show, but one cosplayer decided to mix it up and give Azula, one of the major villains, some love.

Avatar: The Last Airbender has some of the best characters ever created, but none are as cruel and manipulative as Azula. She’s an incredibly powerful firebending prodigy who would do anything to elevate her power, even if it means turning her back on loved ones.

However, beneath her cold exterior and evil motives lies a poor girl with deep-seated emotional issues. It stems back to the fact she was raised by her stern father and always exceeded his high expectations.

Azula becomes increasingly unstable throughout the story, to the point where she has a complete emotional breakdown. It’s a sad story that earns her pity and sympathy from other characters, as well as fans of the show.

Azula is relentless in her pursuit of Team Avatar.

Even though Azula is one of the main antagonists and a complicated character, some fans are drawn to her. They acknowledge her keen intellect and incredible power and understand she became the way she did due to an unfortunate upbringing.

A cosplayer named Momo Keki is one of those fans. In the past, she dressed up as My Hero Academia’s Todoriki Shouto and Katsuki Bakugo. Now, she stepped into Azula’s shoes and cosplayed the fiery princess to perfection.

Momo Keki’s outfit is faultless from head to toe. It starts with the Fire Lord crown on her head, nestled on top of a wig that looks like the real deal. Then, it includes Azula’s trademark eyebrows, eyelashes, and makeup, as well as her red and black Fire Nation uniform.

It can sometimes be challenging to replicate the finer details, but this outfit has it all. However, what makes it even better is the pose, expression, and overall attitude on her face. It feels like you’re seeing Azula in real-life.

Of course, most people would be afraid to come face-to-face with Princess Azula. She’d make them bow down and pay their respects or burn them to a cinder. 

Still, even those who dislike her as a character have to admit that Momo Keki’s cosplay was magnificent.

Dragon Ball Z cosplayer stuns fans with incredible Bulma transformation

A Dragon Ball cosplayer captured the spirit of the original chapter 4 manga cover featuring Bulma with a brilliant outfit.

Throughout the series, the character of Bulma has changed drastically going from the somewhat edgy-looking teen early on to a respectable scientist by the time we reach Z and eventually Vegeta’s wife.

However, one of her most classic looks comes in the form of the cover art for manga chapter 4/Volume 10 with her wild rider attire and stunning gun-wielding pose.

Cosplayer Jessica Heeren managed to nail the iconic look and took to Reddit to show off the outfit and got a lot of compliments from fans of Dragon Ball.

“That looks great! I love your attention to detail, and how bright and happy it came out! really carries the energy of the series and character,” one user noted.

As you can see, the cosplay was able to completely recreate everything from the manga. Her right pant leg is completely bare, exposed instead with a bandaged kneecap. The gloves are mixed and matched with one longer than the other.

Even the hair, which is often times very difficult to get just right, amazed some users on Reddit.

“Nice job on the hair, I always find that people mess up the color but it looks really natural and not out of place here,” one fan remarked.

“Thank you. It was a higher quality lace front wig, which I had cut professionally by a hairdresser. Then styled it myself. I am always very picky on getting the right wigs,” Heeren replied.

According to the cosplayer, when ended up scouring eBay for nights on end searching for the exact wig for this particular outfit.

The Dragon Ball series has been going on since the 1980s and has no sign of stopping any time soon with the Super manga. Hopefully, the series can continue to change up Bulma’s look so Jessica Heeren can keep banging out these amazing cosplays.
